Galaxy Note 8 leaks again in case maker renders, Arctic Silver version included

Back when the first color versions leak of the Galaxy S8 came our way, we couldn't help but notice the funky names that Samsung chose for the hues - Black Sky, Orchid Grey, and Arctic Silver. That last Arctic Silver version will apparently be present as a color layer on the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, as well, if the leaked case maker render above holds water. It will probably join the obligatory black and grey versions, as well as that Blue Coral that so many seem to be fond of. Will Samsung ever release a pinkish Note 8, or a brand new color altogether, remains to be seen.

They are both ugly, Sony XZP is better sexy monolithic design.

I stated with the FPS being by the camera, that the renders showing the vertical camera would have been better overall since its centralized on the device. This would have made the FPS also sit lower and would have been closer to the middlle of the back of the phone. But the FPS is a rather larger part and maybe this would get in the way of the battery or maybe its to close to the woreless charging component and thus Samsung didn't want to risk parts liek the wireless charging coil which gets got, to possible melt the FPS componenet. But see the trolls and thosw who don't think outside the box, don't think about whats best for the device. They only think about themselves. Which is why every FPS post is completely stupid. Evenything can't be how you liek it to be, It has to be the way it has to be. And when you see Samsung phone taken apart, you know the wirelless chargign coil sits right underneath the battery. So you have a coil and battery that both heat up during charging. The PCB is along the side with a heat pipe to keep the heat down on the chips. So the only safe location for it is by the camera. And maybe even though I though vertical was better. Vertical may put the FPS to close to sources of extreme heat which could damage the part itself. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!!!!! There are plenty of phone with FPS in the home button or centralized on the back. If it means that much to you, buy them. {PROBLEM SOLVED. Complaining about this one [phone is simply stupid. I don't like the FPS placement either. But I'm not bashing it constantly either.Its where it is, either get use to it and use it, or you have the option to not buy the phone.

It isn't trolling to discuss the position of the fps. Ergonomically, it's in a terrible spot. There's a natural range of motion that everyone has, which is why most manufacturers put them in a similar array of spots. This falls outside of the comfort zone for most people. It's a very valid criticism. Everything else can be amazing (and by and large is on the S8 and S8 +) but you can still find fault and discuss. Think of it this way: It isn't bashing the phone, rather people saying "Hey, this is a great device, but I can't live with the compromise of the placement of the fps". That should be seen as valid and valuable feedback, and the sort of thing that Samsung should be listening to.

Nothing beats front facing fps until tech companies can implement under screen fps technology.

Wonder when Samsung announce the discounts for previous Note 7 owners who returned their phones? Surely they will keep to this. The ones who returned when ask that is.
